Thrifty Things Friday #47

Hi everyone!


I recently picked up this frame at the thrift store (Yes, I went to a thrift store…finally!)  for $1.49. I loved the thickness of the wood. 


Then I searched out “Vintage St. Patrick’s Day Postcards” and found these sweet little boy and girl postcards. I copied them and sized them to fit the frame openings and just printed it off on my printer. No special paper, printer or crafting machine. Just cut them and slide them into the frame.


Isn’t that simple but so cute?


You could do this for any season/holiday.

Now, let’s check out a couple of fun posts from last week.

Sandra at De Oude Huize showed us all the repurposed treasures throughout her home.


Over at Retail DiYet, we saw a great redo on an old hutch!


And at Scarlett Loves Elvis, we got to see some wonderful thrift finds!
